What are clickers?

Some instructors at the University of Windsor use wireless student response system more commonly known as "clickers" from Turning Technologies. This technology encourages student participation in larger classes, provides instructors immediate feedback during lectures, and has been shown to improve student understanding and retention.    Instructors are now moving towards wireless technologies that incorporate mobile devices where reception is good on campus and can use software such as Echo360, Kahoot, Poll Everywhere, Mentimeter, TopHat Monocle, Socrative or other systems.  Some of these technologies involve purchasing licenses, so use is dependant upon which system is chosen. Check with your instructor for further details.
